Here’s a deeper dive on each bike. Most of these will ship faster than the current wait times on the Lectric ebikes.


The HeyBike Mars Fat Tire Ebike sells for $999 and has a lot of cool features even a bigger battery than the current Lectric Xp. It has a 500 Watt motor and fold ups just like the XP. Other features include;

  • Two Steps Folding Design

  • Up to 37 miles(pure electric)/ 48 miles range per charge (pedal assist)
  • Removable 48V 12.5Ah removable lithium battery
  • Front Shock Absorber

The Ecotric Fat Tire Portable and Folding Electric Bike is on sale right now for $839. From an affordability standpoint thats a great price. It has a 500w motor but the battery is 36V (12ah) not 48.

It offers cruise control and three levels of power assist (PAS). It only weighs 56 pounds so its even lighter than the Lectric (63 lbs).


The Swagatron EB8 FOLDABLE FAT TIRE ALL-TERRAIN ebike features dual suspension and sells for $999. It has a 36V battery pack. Choose between three riding modes: throttle-only, pedal-only, or pedal-to-go. With a high-torque 350-watt motor, the EB8 delivers exhilarating power and undeniable performance. Reach max speeds of 18.6 mph. Conquer inclines of 25 degrees. Travel up to 21.4 miles on a single charge using throttle only. Switch to pedal-to-go mode and go even faster, higher and farther. Available on Amazon.



The G-FORCE T41 FOLDING E-BIKE is probably the coolest design of these bikes. We like the way they set the fenders and the paint job is stellar. It also has the coolest wheels. The G-Force has a 10.4ah 48 volt battery and features dual suspension. However the motor is only 350W. Available on Amazon. Price – $999.


The VIVI Electric Bike 20″ x 4.0 Fat Tire  sells for only $819 on Amazon. It has a 500W rear hub motor & 48V 10.4 Ah batteries, which provides faster speed for traffic and more torque for hill climbing. Top speed of up to 20mph. Supports 40miles per charge. It offers a rear rack, fenders, lights just like Lectric does. The design itself is quite similar to the Lectric XP.
